Michail Antonio, and Said Benrahma took the most plaudits at Burnley but Pablo Fornals was also key to the game.
The Spaniard worked ceaselessly and was responsible for winning the ball which led to Mikey’s equaliser after the Burnley penalty.
His performance has rightly earned praise from his teammates and fans and he has become a fixture in the team epitomising what the manager expects from players – 100 per cent.
He will have a massive role to play over the next four games as we aim to turn dreams into reality.
Fornals told www.whufc.com that he is determined to help the Hammers secure the qualification for next season.
He explained that Champions League football was his huge aim and that he believed West Ham were more than good enough to do well in the competition.
He commented on a whole range of issues but on Europe he declared: “For the people who never lived these things, as a footballer it’s one of the best things you can do.
Obviously, if it’s the Champions League, I never played in the Champions League and it’s one of my goals, of course, but if not and the second option is the Europa League, I think it’s another great tournament to be in for us because we are West Ham, we are a top team and we need to play against the best teams.”
Looking at the remainder of the games we face he added: “From now until the end of the season, every team is going to play for something and obviously we are as well, but if we want to stay near the top, we have to win and that’s it.
“When we played Everton at Goodison Park, we played really well and we need to play like we did in that game, and the way we did at Burnley on Monday.
“If we are thinking about more than the Everton game, we’ll lose this game, so we have to keep this mentality and try to beat them and to be one step closer.”
He’s also delighted with the form of his big pal Mikey Antonio declaring: “Mikey was out for a few games, returned for us and scored twice, so I said to him ‘Come on, I need to score as well!’
But obviously we’re delighted to have him back and if he is scoring twice in every game then we will have a great chance of winning.
“I think nobody in this league can stop Mikey when he is fit, so we’re so happy to have him in our team.”
